Used Trommel Screens
Our trommel screens are highly efficient in the separation and processing of wood chips, top soil, compost, light demolition waste, domestic waste and aggregates. Their rotating drums roll larger pieces of material to allow all fines to flow down and through the trommel screen plates.

How do trommels work?
Trommels operate on a simple yet highly effective principle: materials are loaded into the drum, which then rotates. As the drum turns, smaller particles or objects fall through the perforations, while larger ones continue along the length of the drum until they exit at the other end. This process is invaluable for sorting and separating materials based on size, shape, or other characteristics. Waste and Recycling: Trommels are integral to waste sorting facilities and recycling plants. They help segregate recyclable materials like paper, plastic, and glass from non-recyclables and organic waste, enhancing the efficiency of recycling processes.
